Ex-Arsenal scout Milosavljevic: I told Wenger about Jovetic, Milivojevic

Former Chester City midfielder Goran Milosavljevic has revealed he recommended Luka Milivojevic and Stevan Jovetic to Arsenal.

Before Arsene Wenger's departure, Milosavljevic worked with Arsenal in his role as an independent scout and agent.

Milosavljevic told the Chester Chronicle, "Luka Milivojevic is another player who I recommended. I started working with him at a young age, around 12, and then seriously when he was about 15. He has gone on to play for Crystal Palace and is doing well in the Premier League. He is one of their top players.

"Another player I saw very early was Stevan Jovetic when he was with Partizan. He has gone on to play for Fiorentina, Manchester City and Inter Milan.

"I don't work so closely with Arsenal anymore after Arsene Wenger left but I am scouting and representing players across Europe. I'm currently in France and finding clubs for players who have been playing in Greece.

"One thing I would like to be able to do in the future is find a player for Chester who could make a difference. The English game is a very tough one and a lot of players are not ready for it."
